VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Nov 18, 2014 Jkt 235001 Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This information collection is necessary to determine applicant eligibility to receive mortgage relief assistance under the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program. This Notice informs the public that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to OMB, an information collection package with respect to implementing the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program targeted to borrowers facing foreclosure. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111–203, approved July 21, 2010, Sec 1496) appropriated $1billion to HUD to establish an Emergency Homeowner’s Relief Fund, pursuant to section 107 of the Emergency Housing Act of 1975, that will provide emergency mortgage assistance to homeowners that are at risk of foreclosure due to involuntary unemployment or underemployment due to an adverse economic or medical condition. Accordingly, HUD is implementing the Emergency Homeowners Loan Program (EHLP) that is designed to offer a declining balance, deferred payment ‘‘bridge loan’’ (nonrecourse, subordinate loan with zero interest) for up to $50,000 to assist eligible homeowners with payments of arrearages, including delinquent taxes and insurance. Additionally, EHLP may be used to assist eligible homeowners with up to 24 months of monthly payments on their mortgage principal, interest, mortgage insurance premiums, taxes, and hazard insurance. Assistance will not exceed $50,000 per eligible homeowner. HUD will use two approaches to implement EHLP: (1) Provide allocations to States that currently have substantially similar programs to administer their mortgage relief funds directly; and (2) delegate key administrative functions to third party entities that will assist HUD with program implementation. The third party entities will be primarily responsible for application intake, eligibility screening, funds control, payment distribution, and note processing. Homeowners’ (borrowers’) participation in the program is voluntary. However, to help determine eligibility for assistance borrowers must submit the required application information and loan documentation to demonstrate that they meet program eligibility guidelines to receive mortgage relief assistance through EHLP.
